The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"Rydges South Bank offers easy access from the street and throughout all areas of the hotel.
"The verandah in the accessible room at Rydges is step-free and wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair.
The accessible room is spacious with plenty of circulation space for a wheelchair user and room on either side of the bed to transfer to the bed.
The room features large wall light switches, visual alarms for people with a hearing impairment and lowered amenities. The mini-bar fridge and tea & coffee making facilities are all at lowered heights. The treat food in the mini-bar would be a little difficult to reach for a wheelchair user.
A clothing rack lowers to make it easier to reach. A bit of upper body strength is needed to pull it down but I thought this was a nifty inclusion."
"The accessible bathroom has ample room for transferring from a wheelchair to the toilet or shower bench.
The bathroom has grab rails throughout, height adjustable hand-held shower head and lever taps.
All amenities are lowered, there’s a back-rest on the toilet and a wheelchair accessible bathroom sink with a lever tap."
"A wheelchair accessible lift ensures access for all to the pool area. Once in the pool gate there is room to transfer to the edge of the pool but nowhere within the gated area to store a chair."Other accessibility information:
